From Feb. 6 to 13, Anglican Video’s senior producer, Lisa Barry, visited the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. Barry kept a diary in which she shared not only the events of the day but insights gained from meeting the “living stones,” the people of the Holy Land who live their faith on the ground, where it matters most.

Andrea Mann, global relations director at the Anglican Church of Canada, took some time during her presentation to Council of General Synod (CoGS) Nov. 15 to talk about how Jerusalem Sunday has furthered the Canadian church's commitment to building a strong relationship with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.
Berlin: "Jews to the gas!"
Paris: "Death to the Jews!"
Milan: "Nuremberg trial for Israel!'
Montreal: "The Diaspora is scattered around the world where they take economic control, provoke the hatred of local nations...They make Washington, Paris and Ottawa submit."
About the project
The Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem have been companions in mission for many years, yet not much is known about this relationship.
Each year, numerous Canadians visit the Holy Land as pilgrims, students and tourists, yet many know little of the life and witness of Christians there—be they Palestinian, Arab Israeli, Jordanian, Lebanese or Syrian.
There is much to see, hear, experience and learn about being Anglican, being Christian in this ancient, troubled place today.
Journey to Jerusalem Sunday—a multimedia web page produced by the Anglican Journal and Anglican Video—intends to make the people and stories of Anglicans in the Holy Land come alive in word, image and sound. We hope it will contribute to a greater understanding of how the ancestors of the first indigenous Christian community—“the living stones”—are living out their faith despite continuing social, political and economic hardships.
